Rachel Garcia's lush, jazz vocals and Thu Tran's swinging, dynamic guitar arrangements flow together effortlessly with lyrical, original songwriting to create The Singer and The Songwriter's signature sound. Their jazz-inspired chemistry and repertoire can be soothing enough for an elegant cocktail hour or relaxed brunch, while their original material is emotionally engaging enough to command the attention of an audience in a theater, house concert or listening room experience. "His guitar shimmies and swings like Django Reinhardt while her voice wraps around each note, swaying in unison like a modern-day Ella Fitzgerald."

Debuting at #34 on the CMJ Jazz Top 40 Charts, the duo's first album was critically praised as "diverse, confident, stylish and accomplished" (Americana-UK), "a revelation" (Pittsburgh In Tune) and "an opus worthy of national attention" (Playback: STL). They are currently touring the US in support of their latest release. Of their live show, The Eastsider LA writes: ""Tran's […] colorful playing style paired wonderfully with the dramatic and soulful voice of his partner in crime. It was clear that underneath Garcia's cafe-jazz voice lay a rich, billowing and powerful vocal onslaught. "

Friendly vibes. Beautiful music. ?? Rachel and Thu played at our Celebration Of Life event and they were just lovely. I'm so thankful they were able to play for us even for a short time. Very kind people. It was also last minute and they were still eager and accommodating, even after driving 2 1/2 hours to play for us. I hope someday in the future I will have a chance to hear them play again because it was just beautiful. She has a soothing voice and they way he plays guitar to match is just perfect. They have an amazing quality about them and they really set the tone for our reception. I can't thank them enough! I was so grateful for their time and music.

Rachel and Thu did an absolutely incredible job at our wedding, playing during our ceremony and at the cocktail hour! They were very flexible in dealing with the changing weather, and were a huge hit with our families and guests! We couldn't recommend them more highly.
